I totally support your prerogative to name your packages whatever you 
want (within reason).  My main thought are about long-term aesthetics. 
A hard to defend cause, I admit.

I wouldn't mind that.

If "zc" were to become "zope community", I'd be *totally* for it (but I 
don't speak for ZC here, so that may not be cool with others, like say 
Jim).  We'd either keep using "zc" under the new meaning, or switch to 
something else.

I'm sorry.  It's off my chest now, so if this (mercifully) peters out 
soon, we'll all be better off.
